Happy Easter.

Carrot Cake

2 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
2 teaspoons vanilla
Dash ground allspice
4 eggs
1 cup canola oil
4 cups finely shredded carrots (about 1-1/2 pounds)

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, mix flour, sugar, cinnamon, baking soda, salt, and allspice. In a large bowl, beat eggs with an electric mixer on medium to high speed until light. Add oil in a stream while beating on medium speed and add vanilla. Beat in flour mixture until batter is smooth. Stir in carrots by hand. Pour batter into 3 pans that have been greased and floured. Cakes will be thin. Bake for 20-25 minutes. When cooled completely frost with cream cheese frosting.

About Lorie Fangio

I am a lifestyle advisor with a passion for connecting families Around the Table for mealtime. We are becoming a society that doesn’t even speak to each other, texting and internet relationships are the norm and it is impacting our culture. I believe the human connection as we know it, is in danger. Finding time to spend together as a family unit can be difficult especially with dual family careers and children that are often hyper scheduled. My mission is to inspire families, with a no nonsense approach to real food. Gathering Around the Table is key to the foundation of familial relationships. Sitting down to a meal is much more than breaking bread, it is a bonding ritual for families that actually protects our kids from all the dangerous stuff in the world. With tips and techniques we can all get our families Around the Table!
